I never had the good fortune to visit the shop, but I have had great service from them online previously. As they were closing down and had some great online offers, I though it only right that I should make up for never visiting by buying a stack of stuff from them.
I shall let the pictures do most of the talking today as there is just way too much to write about all of it.
The two main coveted items (that I must have put in my basket about 100 times previously) and finally saw in the flesh at the Philofaxy meet up were these two babies below...
|It's quite a big box, so we're assuming A5|
|Can you guess what it is yet?|
|Loops are top and bottom instead of at the sides, how odd - and|
why did I not already know this?
|One minor ring issue, but I'm sure it's fine :-)|
These two were top of my futures Filofaxes list, and at these discounts I wasn't going to hang about.
Once these two beauties were done (the main purpose of my visit to the website) it was time to look at inserts etc. The following is just a stack of photos of what I chose...
|Deskfax inserts (which I had totally forgotten I'd ordered)|
|Really bad picture, sorry - you'll have to believe me when I|
tell you that these are A5 cream ruled paper and zip lock envelopes
|Personal plain cotton cream (ready for printing) and pocket|
zip lock envelopes
|City Organisers own brand pocket sized reminder sets, so|
cute, and very cheap so I just had to get lots of them :-)
|Hobbit ruled and plain notebooks that I've wanted since before|
they released them
|What self-respecting female wouldn't want|
one of these?
|And this was an essential - another one|
that I wanted before they were released
|On sale and places I intend to visit :-) And some plain cagier|
notebooks (somehow I have managed again to choose plain
instead of ruled - I am an idiot. Never mind, they will get used.
My compact black Holborn - this my make me move out of my mini Chameleon as a wallet for a while...
Also, with each of the Filofaxes I got a free pen (one was hiding when it was photo time, clearly a little camera shy), so I will leave you with my favourite pic...
